Tasty, but not quite great
I grunden lik den vanliga 23an men mer komplex, men toner av (rökig?) Whisky, hårt rostat ekfat, honung och banan. Saknar en gnutta sötma och lite längre eftersmak, annars hade den fått en 8a.
The rum is very well balanced and smooth. Not too sweet with nice banana and vanilla aroma. Dark amber color. Pretty nice bottle and label design, will definitely look good in a collection. Really looking forward to tasting other rums from this series.
This Zacapa La Doma absolutely fits for purpose from my point of view. After the relatively successful limitations of the 13-14-15-19 editions, where I still flew around after guided tastings, another four-part one is coming, which will have an interesting development. Perfect amber color, rather darker. The taste is soft, not so sweet, but it didn't shoot out of the shorts, I can smell vanilla and banana anyway, after 5 minutes even a little smoke. The packaging is also a nice bottle, but for visitors and as a nice gift excellent🥃
Quite a disappointment for me. The nose is fine with wood and one can smell the whisky barells, the taste is smooth and fruity, but a little dull and the worst thing for me is that they kinda forgot (as D&D would say) to give it a finish apart from the sweetness. So in general, it might be a pleasant drink for Zacapa fans, but for me it is definitelly not worth the price.
Just came home with this beauty...
Directly after pooring this up in a glass there is a weak but noticable whiskey spirit scent to it. After a few minutes it develops to really complex. First comes the honey/cane sugar, then it develops to ripe tropical fruits, figs, sherry, vanilla and some oaky tones, but I am surprised that it's zacapa but still not.
Mouth, first some oaky and berry tones, then cane syrup, lot's of nuts and also sherry tones. Really nice and smooth but also a bit dry. Love it.
I would've given it a 9 if the finish was a bit longer.
This is truly one of Zacapas better rums. It's a lot more interesting than the regular solera 23.
